Second visit of kibinago fish bait.
南蛮づけ nanban zuke. It’s fried fish, then marinated in a sour sauce. The result is very light on the stomach.
kibinago (silver stripe round herring) are these small mini-fish, often to small to cut them. Perfect for frying.
Wash the fish and drain well water. Sprinkle black pepper and chili pepper or other spices (optional).
Heat frying oil. Pass the fish in potato starch, fry them.
The fried fish, onion, carrot, ginger (grated) a chili pepper.
For the sauce : 1/2 cup water, 2 tbs mirin, 1 tbs soy sauce, 2 tbs sake brought to a boil. Then add 4 tbs of black rice vinegar. Pour on fish and veggies. Cover. Let 30 minutes minimum. I prefer overnight.
The next day.
Renkon (lotus root) in black vinegar with ginger. Green beans and edamame in yuzu citrus juice.
Genmai (brown rice) and miso soup with wakame seaweed.
